Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is back on the practice field, two days after he experienced tightness in his hamstring. Jeffery, who was bothered by injuries last season, figures to again have an opportunity to help Chicago's passing game improve.
Jeffery finished last season with 24 catches for 367 yards and three touchdowns. The Bears open the preseason against the Carolina Panthers on Friday.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will want to see how Jeffery is used by first-year head coach Marc Trestman. Jeffery certainly has the talent to make a fantasy impact this season but no one wants to have deal with a nagging hamstring injury.
Jeffery is worth a pick on Draft Day and the hope is he can stay healthy enough to become a steady No. 2/3 wide receiver in most fantasy formats.
